Berginvilla is an extremely well-appointed, custom designed, and decorated single family home. This is your home-away-from-home! Sunsets from your screened-in porch are world class. Walk out your door to a large swimming pool, tennis court and path to the Gulf of Mexico beach. This three bedroom, three and a half bath private home has everything that you could ever dream of. The island is only accessible by car ferry or personal boat....part of the charm of our little island! Unknown to many, this is an ideal location for making family vacation memories. We specialize in relaxing, tranquility, and laid-back times!
We just returned from our stay at Berginvilla, the home had all that we needed and so much more! Our favorite was the wrap around porch - any time of day - outdoor meals, morning coffee on the couch or afternoon nap in the hammock. We made many walks on the beach and found many shells to add to the shell garden. We rotated between the beach and the pool area each day and before we knew it the end of the day was near and we were treated to another beautiful sunset. Our kids enjoyed Berginvilla just as much as we did and we sure hope to be be able to return someday soon!
This was are second visit to this house and everything as as nice and pleasant as the first time we were there. House is comfortable with great linens, a kitchen that meets all for your needs, a pool that was heated and rarely used by others while we were there and of course the amazing beach. Suzie was there to answer any questions and even asked if we needed anything from the main land. We needed a beach umbrella and was brought over very quick.
Our stay was very relaxing and the area was so nice and quiet.
It's one our favorite homes to rent. Great living room and view with wrap around porch on three sides. Sliding glass doors open up on all three sides to screened in porch. Large kitchen and great dinning table seats 10-12. Pool was warm nice to swim in. Nice hammock on porch.
Let me start by saying that Berginvilla is very well equipped - the kitchen has everything needed, from the typical coffee maker and blender to plenty of pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc. All of the appliances worked well, the kitchen layout was very workable, and the indoor dining area has plenty of room. We tend to cook most of our meals given the limited choices on the island, so also having the gas grill was great.
The location is also very nice - only steps from the pool and a very short walk to the beach, which is our favorite place to be. This trip we found some of the best shark teeth we've seen in our 4 years coming to the island. The accessible dock was also handy for our chartered fishing trip.
Suzie was very responsive to our requests for help and information and there were no issues with any of the arrangements with the house - it was clean and ready for us when we arrived, which hasn't always been the case with other places so that was much appreciated.
The master bedroom layout was the one challenge we found. Specifically, we could tell from the pictures that the upper level bedroom was open to the lower level. What we couldn't tell was that there were no doors to the bedroom from the first floor, and no door to the bathroom (though there was on the toilet). As a result, there was effectively no privacy in the master bedroom and any sounds traveled both up and down, so taking a nap or having a private conversation was nearly impossible.
So, overall this is a wonderful home with many nice amenities. If you're not concerned with the privacy aspect of the master bedroom, you'll absolutely enjoy it. If privacy is a concern for you, just keep in mind that the master bedroom doesn't offer much of it.
Our two families were able to comfortably enjoy Berginvilla! This was an ideal home for us to catch up and enjoy each other's company. Mary and Ed have a beautiful home that is so well equipped. The kitchen was perfect for creating vacation meals! The cousins were in their glory with the beach and pool. Boogie boarding, shelling, searching for shark's teeth , finding gopher turtles and endless golf cart rides were enjoyed by all!
Enjoy our abundance of marine life, wildlife and tropical flora. Explore our pristine beach, with endless shelling. Swim, fish or just relax. This is what 'Island Time' is all about. Part of the charm of the island is getting here! The island is only accessible by car ferry or personal boat. Many family vacation memories are made here!
